Flatlined Comes Alive in Saturday’s G2 Fort Lauderdale


HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Trainer Scooter Dickey had every reason to think that the best was yet to come from Flatlined when he saddled the 5-year-old son of Flatter for Saturday’s $200,000 Fort Lauderdale (G2) at Gulfstream Park.

“The Flatters just get better with age, like I had with Flat Out. If they don’t go wrong, they’re at their best at 4 or 5 years old,” said Dickey after the improving gelding registered his first graded stakes victory by a neck. “I thought if he ran the race he had last time, he’d have a chance.”

Sandiva wins Marshua’s River (G3) for second year in a row


Mare may race once more in Suwannee River before being bred

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – After Sandiva’s dull effort in the Diana at Saratoga Race Course this past July, trainer Todd Pletcher decided to give the mare a freshening with an eye on the Gulfstream Park Championship meet.

The decision paid off in a big way when Al Shaqab Racing’s Sandiva successfully defended her $150,000 Marshua’s River title on Saturday afternoon. Ridden by Javier Castellano, the 6-year-old Sandiva came along late to post a half-length win over Sea Coast. The Pletcher-trained Isabella Sings, the pacesetter in the 1 1/16-mile turf race, finished third, a nose behind the runner-up.

$150,000 Marshua’s River (G3) Quotes


Trainer Todd Pletcher (Sandiva): " “She just needed a little freshening. She had a solid campaign and she seemed like she was just a touch off form and we knew that she loves Gulfstream. We kind of intentionally freshened her up with these races in mind.”

“She is versatile enough that 7 1/2 is probably a tick short than ideal, but she showed enough quality that she almost got there, but I think, obviously, that race helped her out today.”
